ABOUT PRIMARY TREATMENT
CHECKUP, X-RAYS & CONSULTATION
This procedure is done to ensure a proper diagnosis so that a customised and holistic treatment plan is drawn.
SCALING & POLISHING
Scaling and polishing are procedures of removing calculus (tartar), plaque and stains from the teeth. Scaling and polishing help to prevent gum disease and promote healthy gums and teeth.
If part of a tooth has been lost or damaged through decay, your dentist will suggest a dental filling. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.
ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Root canal treatment is a dental procedure used to treat infection of a tooth which is caused by bacteria following tooth decay, trauma or defective fillings. Root canal treatment will save your tooth that may otherwise have to be removed completely.
A denture replaces missing teeth and adjacent tissues. Unlike dental implants, a denture is removable. Dentures will prevent existing teeth from drifting into the space of missing teeth, and improve your chewing efficiency.
TYPES OF DENTURES
Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, the framework of full dentures may be made of resin or metal. At Smile-Link Healthcare Global Berhad, our dentists are trained to provide Suction Effective Mandibular Complete Dentures (SEMCD). This concept, developed by Dr. Jiro Abe in Japan, enhances the suction effect of full lower dentures and allows for denture suction even in patients with advanced resorption of the ridge.
Implant supported overdentures are other alternatives to conventional full dentures whereby full dentures are placed over dental implants, to provide better retention and stability.
Partial dentures are used when some teeth are missing. Similarly, the framework of partial dentures can be made of resin or metal.
